What types of gift baskets are good for men?

Beer Themed Gift Basket

If you are looking for a perfect gift for the man in your life, why not consider creating a beer themed gift basket? The basket can either have two themes: specialty beers or his favorite brew.

If you are going the favorite beer route, add a few bottles or cans of his favorite to the basket. Find novelty items (cozies, key chains, hats, t-shirts, etc.) to add in with the beer.

For a specialty beer style gift basket, purchase several bottles of different types of beers from around the world. Arrange them with a unique bottle opener, a couple of beer mugs or glasses, and anything else that relates.

This gift basket idea is great for anniversaries, birthdays, Father's Day, and other occasions!

   
Do men like gift baskets?

Football Themed Gift Basket

Believe it or not, men can be flattered by a creative gift basket as much as women can. A football themed gift basket is a great idea for an anniversary, Father's Day, birthday, or any other event in their life. Fill the basket with memorabilia items from their favorite NCAA of NFL team. Add in fun pieces such as drink cozies, t-shirts, jerseys, and more. An actual football also makes a nice touch. If you are really wanting to make an impression, including tickets to a game is always a big hit!

Finding NFL and NCAA items on the web is easy. The real hard part is deciding what items to use in your football themed gift basket. Think about what the recipient enjoys most and find items that include logos for his favorite team.

   
What can you suggest for a get well basket?

Best Wishes for a Speedy Recovery

For a gift that will really brighten their day and express your get well wishes, a gift basket is a great idea! To make it extra special, include items like a large soup cup with handle, organic chicken noodle soup, crackers, tissues, magazines, a DVD and crossword puzzles or word searches. Keep in mind, if the recipient is on a special diet, it may be wise to leave out any food items and just stick with happy things that will keep them from being bored and restless.

   
Can you advise me on Baby Gift Baskets?

Gift Baskets to Welcome the New Addition

Baby baskets are not only packed with useful items, they're also fun to create! If your baby gift is for a shower present and the gender is not yet known, stick to neutral items and color selections. If you include a stuffed animal or toy in your basket, remember to check that it is child proof and there are no parts that may fall off and become a choking hazzard.

   
Should I send flowers or a gift basket for an expression of sympathy?

Sending Deepest Smypathies with Gift Baskets

When people are facing a great loss, they tend to not focus on themselves. Eating a good meal and nourishing the body is very important in times of stress. When you choose to send a sympathy basket, you're not only expressing your concern, you're also helping to allow the recipients to get some nourishment without the hassle of preparing a meal. Flowers are a nice gesture, but you can be sure a gift basket will make a more meaningful impression. Sympathy baskets should contain items that can be shared amongst the family. Here are some examples of such items: fruit, cheeses, crackers, nuts, gourmet flavored iced teas, cookies, seasoned pretzels with a gourmet honey mustard dipping sauce. Remember, it is not reccommended that wine or any other alcohol be included in a sympathy basket!
